I saw that one, and I have, unfortunately, no idea what's going
on there. I have one box with a 7899, and I installed 1.5 onto
it without problems.

Also, our ahc driver is port I did of (now an older version of) the
FreeBSD driver, and the bulk of the OpenBSD ahc driver is a
copy of that port. So it's strange that these systems should
work. There is some difference in the pci frontend to the
driver, but it's failing in a part that is exactly the
same for all systems.

The NetBSD kernel doesn't like something in that system, and
I think that the ahc panic is just a side effect.. No idea
what it is, unfortunately.
